Crochet Koala C2C Blanket free crochet pattern

Apr 19, 2021 | Crochet patterns

The Crochet Koala Bear C2C Graphgan Blanket is a free crochet pattern for an adorable crochet koala bear throw!

Crochet Koala Bear C2C Graphgan

This crochet Koala C2C Blanket is the cousin to the Panda C2C crochet Blanket I released earlier this year. My hope is that eventually you will have a “Wildlife Kingdom” set to include all of your favorite animals! This little guy certainly has a lot of character – and he almost seems to be in motion climbing his tree!

This blanket would be perfect for any koala bear lover or as a unisex baby gift. Especially fitting for a bear or wildlife themed nursery.

I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love this Yarn! for this blanket which is a medium 4/worsted weight yarn but you could certainly substitute your favorite yarn.

I made my crochet koala blanket with the mini half double crochet (hdc) technique so my blanket ended up being closer to a baby size blanket at 32″ x 37″. However, you could certainly use the double crochet (dc) technique to make the blanket larger.

    Where do I find your spool holder? I can’t figure out how to keep my yarn from tangling with the method I’m using.

      My husband designed this one for me – I don’t have it for sale on my website yet but if you are interested in it I can send you an email with details. It was a real c2c game changer for me! 😊❤️

    Could you please send me the details of the spool holder your husband made. I just made the heart dishcloth to try my hand at this. I used cardboard spools that weren’t so great, but think what you have may be easier for all the colors in the koala blanket.
